The Obama family will be served a White House eviction notice come January, but luckily, they’ve already found new digs to lay down roots.

President Barack Obama, wife Michelle Obama and daughters Malia and Sasha, will lease the Kalorama, D.C., mansion of Joe Lockhart and Giovanna Gray, according to Politico.

The home, which is 8,200 square feet, was built in 1928 and has nine bedrooms, in addition to eight and a half baths.



According to public record, Lockhart bought the mansion in 2014 for $5,295,000.

White House officials, contacted by PEOPLE, had no immediate comment on the story.

Lockhart, the former White House Press Secretary for President Bill Clinton and current EVP of communications for the NFL, and wife Gray, a Glamour editor, have relocated to Manhattan, Politico reported.

The president announced his plans to stay in D.C. after his term ends earlier this year. The family will stay at least until daughter Sasha, who is a sophomore, finishes high school, Obama said.

Before moving into the White House in 2009, the family lived in Chicago, where Obama was an Illinois state senator and where the family still owns a home.
